Five In Five With Glass Mountain

in Interviews by

Glass Mountain have unveiled the astonishing video for Gin Flows Through My Veins.

The video was made by the expert hands of long-time video collaborators Sodium, who completely left the band out of the creative process, delivering the finished product the night before it went live. To say the band clearly had faith is an understatement. And that faith, equally clearly, has been justified.

 

Gin Flows Through My Veins is the band’s first release since signing to Hide & Seek Records, home of Post War Glamour Girls, Department M and Sam Airey, and is the first track to be revealed from their Wow & Flutter EP, due to be released in February on deluxe coloured 12” vinyl. The EP is available for pre-order now from: http://glassmountainband.com/

The label have been avid fans of the Bradford based band since falling in love with their fragile yet gut-punching debut Glacial EP in 2016 and are delighted to be joining forces with the talented four-piece as they continue what is already proving to be an exciting journey. A journey that, in a year since forming, has already seen Glass Mountain – who take their name from a David Hockney artwork – support a diverse range of artists including Slotface, Elvis Depressedly, Embrace and space-rock legends Hawkwind.  Five

We caught up with Vocalist Harry Hanson and put our five in five questions to him:

1: What has been your biggest f*ck up onstage? Where was it; what song was it; how was it received?
In the short time that we have been a band, nothing major has gone wrong fortunately … touch wood. We have had little minor things such as strings snapping and jack leads breaking, which is to be expected, and usually the crowd are very understanding. Sorry for the boring answer

2: You’re changing the band’s name to your favourite fruit + the reason you last took painkillers; your new band name is …?
Grapefruit Hangover. Nice.

3: How can we collectively put an end to online ticket touting? Feel free to show your workings for extra points …
I’m sure this idea has already been discussed as part of a plan to stop ticket touting but, start putting pictures of the ticket buyer on the ticket itself. That way they can’t buy more than one ticket unless they have the other person’s picture for another ticket and it also means they can’t sell the ticket on.

4: What would your music Super Power be; and which other bands would you use it on and why? 
My Super Power? To be able to talk and tune my guitar between songs. I find it hard enough thinking of words to say in the gaps, and having to also tune makes it twice as difficult. I would use this super power to help anyone that I like who has the same issue of not being able to talk and tune at the same time. 

5: Your idol is going to give you the instrument that they’re famous for: 
    Who is it? Robert Smith
    What instrument? He’s not really famous for playing it live but I would love Robert Smith’s Jazzmaster! He played all of his parts on the first Cure record, Three Imaginary Boys, with that Jazzmaster.
     Why? It’s a piece of history! I love Jazzmasters and I love Robert Smith. It’s a win, win.

 

Always loved music live, enjoy all genre's. Adding photography into the mix has been more recent and enjoying combing the two together. Self confessed vinyl junkie, so if not down the front, often found searching through record shops.
